MIHCA Operation AED 2015

Help save a life! Support Operation AED 2015.

The Mayne Island Health Centre Association (MIHCA) is raising $10,000 to purchase five additional Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) to be placed in strategic locations around the island. Currently we have three AEDs — outside Gulfport Realty, the Ag Hall and the Community Centre.

In the case of a cardiac arrest, an AED provides a “shock” to restore the heart’s normal pumping function. The “shock” should be delivered within 3 minutes of the arrest — hence our goal to have more AEDs available in other areas around the island. An AED is safe and easy to use and over 150 Mayne Islanders have already received training through the First Aid Courses we sponsor every year.
To donate please complete a donation form (available outside Tru Value or at the Health Centre), drop it off at the Health Centre or mail it to MIHCA, #100 - 526 Felix Jack Road, Mayne Island BC V0N 2J2. Please note on both the form and your cheque that your donation is for “Operation AED 2015”.

Donate on-line at www.mayneislandhealth.ca. Click on: “Donate Now” (bottom right hand corner of the home page). Then click “General” and select the “Operation AED 2015" option. Thank you for your support.
